People who don't know any better (and my fuck, there are a lot of them!) think that the answer to all the woes of the world is if not more, then "smarter" regulation.
If you think that regulation actually benefits and protects the consumer, watch this video.
Regulation is how big companies prevent small companies from entering the market. They also help to justify more and more government. Any benefit we at the end of the food chain actually get or do not get out of the regulation is entirely accidental and pretty irrelevant to those who create the regulations.
Regulation is NOT your friend.
